The 2000D isn’t a huge upgrade on the 1300D, so if your budget is tight then the 1300D might be the wiser choice between the two. There are now better budget DSLRs available, though, as well as decent mirrorless alternatives like Canon’s own EOS M50 for a little more. Verdict The 1300D’s ISO sensitivity ranges between ISO 100 and ISO 6400. It is also expandable to 12800. Image noise gets more visible after ISO 800, especially when shooting in lossy image compression.

If you are into Canon cameras but want more features, upgrade to the 250D or 850D. Scores Despite being succeeded by the Canon 2000D, the 1300D remains a potentially good second-hand choice if you’re looking for your first DSLR – although we’d be inclined to wait for the imminent Nikon D3500, or spend a little more on the Canon 200D.

Focusing Brightness Range (EV 0 - 18 (Center AF Point), EV 1 - 18 (other AF Points) with One-shot AF at Room Temperature, ISO 100), Brightness Metering Range: EV 1 - 20 (at Room Temperature, ISO 100) The good news is that the EF-S lenses are smaller and lighter than the Canon EF lenses. They also tend to be more affordable. However, it is wise to consider buying an EF lens if you plan an update for a camera with a larger sensor in the future. As well as the fully automatic and scene shooting modes you'd expect in a camera aimed at novice photographers, there are also manual and semi-auto aperture priority and shutter priority modes, plus the ability to shoot in raw format. The camera can shoot Full HD video, and it’s capable of producing some good footage. However, video functionality is very much a supplement to being a stills camera, rather than a reason to buy the 1300D. Should you buy the Canon EOS 1300D? Directly from the camera, JPEG images display great colours, which are accurate when using the automatic white balance setting in most conditions. Under artificial lighting, images are a little on the warm side – while that isn’t necessarily a bad thing for some subjects, for complete accuracy you’ll be better off switching to a specific white balance setting.There is also the Fujifilm X-T10, which is a mid-range compact camera. It has a 16.3MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS II sensor and a tilting 3-inch 920k-dot LCD screen. It is capable of 8fps burst shooting, and its ISO sensitivity range is ISO 100-51200. The Live View feature is also nice to have but makes the autofocus slow. The video mode allows limited control. Another alternative is the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III mirrorless camera. While the Canon 1300D has an optical viewfinder, the Olympus model has an electronic one. The latter offers a wider field of view. This camera also features a touch screen.

If you’ve used or seen a 1200D, then you’ll be familiar with the 1300D’s build and layout – Canon hasn’t strayed too far from the blueprint here. Native sensitivity remains at ISO100-6,400, expandable up to 12,800, but given the slightly better processor a modest improvement in low-light performance is promised. That said, the ISO range now looks quite limited compared to much newer rivals. The camera is made of carbon fiber/glass fiber and polycarbonate resin. The grip is on the right side and is quite comfortable. It is easy to hold the camera in hand, but it is not weather-sealed. As befits an entry-level camera, it’s on the relatively small side for a DSLR, but it’s chunky enough to be satisfying for those upgrading from a compact camera. The grip is slightly contoured, as well being textured, which helps it to sit nicely in your hand.The viewfinder shows 95% of the scene, so the magnification is approximately 0.80x. This is normal for entry-level DSLRs.

The Canon EOS 1300D does not have a dedicated movie button. You have to set the Mode dial to Video to record. If you want manual exposure settings, you should change them in your camera’s menu. The 1300D offers 1080p video recording at 30, 25 and 24fps. It has Full HD video recording, but this is quite outdated at 4K video recording. This is why the Canon 1300D is a great entry-level camera for photographer newbies. Mount and Compatibility The 1300D includes an optical viewfinder. It offers a reasonably bright and clear view, but it shows only 95% of the scene. That’s pretty normal for entry-level DSLRs, but it means you need to be careful during composition that something doesn’t creep in to the edge of the frame that you don’t notice. This is one place where electronic viewfinders definitely have an advantage over their optical cousins. Make no mistake, if you’re jumping from a compact camera or smartphone, then the quality of the 1300D’s images will impress, despite its age. A scrolling dial can be found close to the shutter-release button, which you use to set the aperture (when shooting in aperture priority mode), or the shutter speed (when shooting in shutter priority mode). If in manual mode, you’ll use the dial to control both, holding down the exposure compensation button to switch between the two.There are quite a few buttons on the rear of the camera, but they’re grouped in one place to make changing settings easy. There are direct keys for some settings – such as ISO, AF type, white balance and exposure compensation – and a Q button to gain access to some of the other commonly used settings, such as metering.
